Sunday Scriptures — Let Jesus Handle It

Isaiah 40By Sandy Kirby Quandt

One year when I sent my accountant all the statements I thought he would need to prepare my taxes, I told him I hoped I’d given him everything in good order. He replied that no matter what I’d sent and how I’d prepared it, it would be better than the shoe boxes of receipts his mother handed him each year to sort through.

Mike’s mother had confidence in him to take everything she turned over, sort it all out, and make sense of the mess. She never worried about handing it to him in a neat package.

So I’m thinking…that’s exactly the way we need to depend on Jesus. We need to have confidence in him to take all our mess, all our heartache, all our failures and disappointments, sort it all out and make some sort of sense of it.

We don’t need to worry whether we’ve bundled up our worries, broken places, and hurts into a nice neat package for Jesus to look at.

Jesus is the professional. He’ll take what we give him, no matter how messy it is, sort through it, and make it all right.

We can count on it.

Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. 1 Peter 5:7 (TLB)

I wish you well.

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Pilot has had a dreadfully difficult year. Because he and I chose to do life together, that means these past twelve months have been rough on me, too.

If one hurts, we both hurt.

But God…

is Sovereign

is in control

has a plan

will never leave us, or forsake us

works all things together for good, for those who are in his will

So, if you are in a rough spot right now, hang in there. Keep holding onto God’s hand. Don’t give up hope. Trust in the One who has his eye on you. The One who calls you his Beloved. The One who is the Promise Keeper.

 

God has a plan for you. A plan for you to prosper. Not to harm you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Remember everything God has brought you through. And thank him.

Think of what he is bringing you through. And thank him.

Thank him in advance, for what he will bring you through in the future.

“Why should I be discouraged?”

And I know he cares for you.

I wish you well.
